Zoonoses (Monitoring) (England) Regulations 2007 (S.I. No. 2399 of 2007).

Type of law

These Regulations provide inspectors with powers of entry to carry out monitoring for zoonoses and antimicrobial resistance to zoonotic agents and other agents that pose a threat to public health. These inspections are required by Directive 2003/99/EC. The Regulations require food business operators involved in primary production to keep intact areas that been tested for a zoonosis and to provide tests to the Secretary of State on demand. The Secretary of State shall consult Natural England in relation to any programme for the monitoring of zoonosis or zoonotic agents in wild animals that includes sampling of live wild animals or their nests or resting places. Remaining provisions deal with enforcement and create offences for obstructing an inspector.
